___ Washington Wizards Partner With Neurotechnology Company To Assess Player Fatigue (Forbes): “Professional sports teams are always looking for an edge, as games are often won or lost by one quick decision or one regretful error. As the sports world become receptive to technologies more prevalent in other sectors, the new knowledge gained can enhance that desired edge in ways that would be nearly unrecognizable to a professional athlete a generation ago. One area of continued interest for athletic training is the assessment of how the brain aids performance in competition and how fatigue effects brain performance du...

CONCLUSIONS: We found substantial non-persistence on PrEP medication in both year 1 and year 2. Across the entire 2-year period, only two out of every five users persisted on PrEP. Demographic, financial and pharmacy factors were associated with persistence. Further research is needed to explore how social, structural or individual factors may undermine or enhance persistence on PrEP, and to develop interventions to assist persistence on PrEP.

AbstractYoung female sex-workers (FSW) aged 18 –24 are at high risk of HIV due to high numbers of sexual partners, difficulty negotiating condom use, increased risk of gender-based violence, and limited access to services. Here we describe changes in sexual behaviours among young FSW across Zimbabwe between 2013 and 2016, and risk factors for prevalent HIV in 2013 and 2016. FSW ≥ 18 years were recruited using respondent-driven sampling in 14 sites across Zimbabwe in 2013 and 2016 as part of the SAPPH-IRe trial. We collected data on socio-demographics and sexual behaviour and offered HIV testing. Statis...

In this study, the effect of cathelicidin in the maintenance of epithelial integrity, Toll-like receptor recognition, bacterial invasion and initiation of inflammatory response againstSalmonella typhimurium is investigated in cultured human colonic epithelium. We found exogenous human cathelicidin restores the epithelial integrity inS. typhimurium-infected colonic epithelial (T84) cells by mostly post-translational effects associated with reorganization of zonula occludens (ZO)-1 tight junction proteins. Endogenous cathelicidin preventsS. typhimurium internalization as shown in colonic epithelial cells genetically deficien...
